Seriously! How it is already Thanksgiving! Time sure flies when you’re having fun and getting big and pregnant! haha
On a side note, I think I’m most looking forward to this years Thanksgiving. Since Mike and I have been married we’ve always had a heart for hospitality. Having people over to our house and just serving them. But we haven’t always had the space in our home. Since we’ve moved we FINALLY have the space and have had more people over in the past 6 months than we have in the past 5 years. It has been great. And this year we are having a feast about ALL THANKSGIVING FEASTS! I think we’ll have around 20+ people at the house so we’ll need to bring in extra tables but it is going to be awesome. We might even warm up the pool so the kids can swim.
With all those people comes ahhh – lot of food! So I’m making my list like 3 weeks early this year! Here are a few of the BEST recipes I could find for one ULTIMATE Thanksgiving Feast! I hope you enjoy. I’ve got recipes from how to do your Turkey, classic side dishes, unique side dishes, holiday cocktails, appetizers and of course all the pies and desserts you could dream of. Bon Appetit friends and happy holidays!
